The funny thing is,we have forum members here that are way more overloaded than this picture especially if that TC is empty..

I am not sure how many here have used a 1/2 ton truck with a truck camper..I know Burningman has but the fact is,a 1/2 ton rated truck can haul a truck camper just fine and without issue..I have done it three times with 8 and 8.5 truck campers on 1/2 ton trucks and they road just fine without any issues..

This example above is about how long the TC is,not the weight of it because that pickup can easily haul the weight of that TC if it was all within the bed just as the many 3/4 tons here hauling over 1000# above there GVWR...

I join the "fake" club.

The tan-colored trim along the bottom of the truck does not make a straight line at the point just behind the back door where the "bend" is supposed to occur. The rear part of the trim is higher than the front part. It's been Photoshopped.

Why 5 foot beds should be eliminated.

Not sure if this is fake or not, being in the printing industry and having a couple of Adobe suites I'm not sure it was touched, here's another image I found, looks to bend in the same manner;

Nope. That last one is a Chevy Colorado. Not sure what that "Ranger" is all about.

I was reading about the Colorado breaking like that on the Expedition Forums - guy was wheeling in Nevada when that happened.

I saw this on the internet today and came here to post about it, but the post was already up, and the reactions didn't disappoint! My stomach hurts... not from the picture, but from the hilarity of these reactions! [emoticon]
